Abstract

The output signal from a spontaneously pulsing laser must, by definition, consist of more than one frequency component. The experimental and theoretical study of the frequency components associated with such a laser can provide valuable insights into the pulsation processes. The results of an investigation into the frequency characteristics of a spontaneously pulsing standing-wave laser are reported.
